  2. HAHA i failed!

    It should game well - once you get that GPU out of there. The 9600 is the weak spot, I'd do whatever I could to at least get a 5770 in there. I'm not a real Earthwatts fan either, but they're decent.

  5. Id totally remove the Graphics card, That not a good gaming card at all. Its old and ain very good. Id go for the 9800GT its not that much more or the Ati 5770.

    Since price is an issue id go with the 9800GT there is a Mail in rebate for the product at the moment bringing the Price to $85. Which is very good.

    Like i said i cant buy a NEW graphics card yet! -.- this graphics card is on the comp i am sitting on so i am not buying it!
  7. Not to be a downer, but it's not going to perform the way you'd like, especially in graphically intensive apps. If you can't afford a GPU just yet and gaming is your focus, you might be better to just hold off until you can.

    Umm dude, my system now is a goddamn AMD Athlon 3800+ Socket 939, 3 GB Ram 400mhz -.- so i think that the graphics card wont be a big problem!
  9. If you have no funds to upgrade from a 9600GT: you'd be fine lowering resolutions/settings (or both) for a wee bit
